It is vitally important for those dealing with commercial leases in Scotland to have a practical, easy-to-use guide taking you through all aspects of increasingly complex transaction. The 3rd Edition of Ken Gerber’s text fulfils this role. This is anything but a dusty, unwieldy book, and is instead a tool providing plain English answers to any real life queries you may have relating to commercial leases.
The text has been expanded and considerably updated since the previous edition in 2011, taking in all relevant changes to the law since that time. Major new legislation covering long leases, land registration and Land and Building’s Transaction Tax are covered, while the full treatment on repairs and dilapidations has been significantly enhanced.
Author Ken Gerber has worked to develop the practical nature of the book, making it easier for you to find the required know how and work your way through complex issues. He has added four new chapters to this edition, in line with developments in this area of the law. These cover licensed premises and also premises for renewables. There is also a practical new chapter aimed at developing skills in negotiating and revising a lease.
Commercial Leases in Scotland provides comparative commentary on the relevant provisions under English law, imparting a far deeper understanding of this legal area and allowing solicitors and surveyors to understand the differences between the systems when seeking instructions from clients outside Scotland. To enhance ease of use, the book contains tables of statutes, cases and a glossary of Scottish commercial leasing terms.
Commercial Leases in Scotland is the go-to resource for anybody working in this area
